What data does the Baby Box website collect?
As with the majority of websites, https://www.thebabyboxuk.com/ collects data for each visitor. An important element of data collected is a unique IP address, this contains broad data about where you are located (not to house level, just the general area). With access to your IP address, Baby Box could personalise your viewing session based on pages on our website you have previously visited.
The Baby Box website is able to identify each unique visitor via their IP address. It is important to understand though that IP address data is totally anonymous. As a website, we will use information from “cookies” to improve, enhance and optimise the visitor experience.
Cookies are also useful to (anonymously) interpret user visits, their preferences and we can use this data to optimise the website for the benefit of future visitors.
What are the two main types of cookies?
There are two main types of cookies used on most websites, including The Baby Box, these are session cookies and persistent cookies, we go on to explain these:
1) Session cookies
A session cookie lasts for the session and is temporary only. As soon as a visitor leaves their current session the session cookie will be removed.
2) Persistent (permanent) cookies
A persistent cookie as the name suggests is permanent and will be stored as a file within your browser. Our website uses persistent cookies to personalise your future visits, particularly improving load speed.
You control cookies!
Visitors fully control cookies. If you do not like cookies you can block their use through the preference settings of your browser. This is personal to each browser, so if you visit our website on more than one browser you will need to set preferences multiple times.
Blocking cookies to our website is entirely your choice and it will not fundamentally cause an issue with functionality on our website. No access to cookies will mean for our system that future visits are not as personalised as they could be and also will be slower (as there will be no caching of resources). Another consideration of no cookies is that visitors cannot store their login information, so would need to enter login information for each visit.
